Last November, the NF4 consortium visited Brazil as this is one of the target countries of NF4. A group of 11 European SMEs participated in the innovation tour to explore the Brazilian Food & Beverage market. Part of the program was an introduction to FoodTech Hub Brazil, who provided the SMEs with valuable knowledge, insights and support of the Brazilian market. Following the NF4 Innovation Tour, the collaboration between NF4 and FoodTech Hub Brazil was formalized by a Memorandum of Understanding, establishing an agreement to develop a partnership strategy and build deeper relationships between European and Brazilian SMEs.
